Your Investment. Your Library. Your Community.
Delivering on a Promise to Voters:
See what we’ve accomplished during the first 12 years of the KCLS Capital Improvement Plan: 15 new libraries have opened, 11 libraries have been expanded, 12 libraries have been renovated, and two parking expansion projects have been completed, in addition to many other enhancements throughout the System.
With just a few years remaining of the far-reaching building program, KCLS continues to plan ahead to ensure that all projects identified in the Capital Improvement Plan are completed. The Capital Improvement Plan includes improvements for all KCLS libraries and construction is currently underway at a number of sites. Some community libraries may experience temporary Modified Services during library construction.
Although rising construction costs necessitated modifications to some library improvement projects in the past few years, the construction environment appears favorable for completing the remaining projects. KCLS staff and the Board proactively developed Strategic Planning Guidelines to help guide decisions for each project.
